TOPIC: Is this a "Winner"?

Re:Is this a "Winner"? 7 years 5 months ago #57919

Sebastian, real nice job! :)

I too am going to do my next boat using the roll and tip method. My last boat (G3) was sprayed, and I spent WAY TOO MUCH money on the paint job (US$ 2300). I also ended up having to go back and wet sand it anyway... it wasnt smooth enough for my taste. I am now starting the restoration of a 1964 Crestliner Explorer which should be ready for paint sometime this summer.

what type/brand of paint did you use? And would you offer any tips after your experience?

Thanks, Dean

Hi Dean,

I used a paint called Hempel "Poly Best". I'm not sure if it's available on the US marked, but I will give you the homepage: www.hempel.us
On the US homepage of Hempel I can't find the yachting / boating products, there are only the "industry" products. Maybe you call them and ask for Poly Best.
It is really a great paint. But as always, it is not the cheapest you can get... ;)

To apply the paint I used high-quality mohair rollers. Please do not used the cheap foam rollers, they are not resistant for this kind of paint.
For the tipping I used a brush with soft "China bristles". And it's always a good idea to have a needle within reach, if your brush is loosing hair :ohmy:

Last point: cleaning roller and brush...
Do not try to clean them! Throw them away and take new ones for the next layer of paint.
If you try to clean them, you will always have thinner remaining in the roller or brush, that will thin you paint, or (worst case) will not match with the two components of the paint and makes the paint inoperative.


Hope, I could help a little bit! Have a nice day!

Sebastian

This can't be your first restoration?
Excellent work, especially that transom looks really good.
I can't wait to see on the water pics!

:laugh:
This is not my restoration, you're right!
But it is the first restoration of a boat!
I restored old drum-sets, an old house and lots of other old things, other people would throw away... :laugh:

I'm really happy, to get such nice replies here B)
Water-pics will come soon, I will be "watering" the Winner in April. So there is enough work to do!
Today I flipped the boat back on the trailer, so tomorrow I will start painting the rest of the boat.

Stay tuned...

Thats some fantastic work!! Congrats!

For those of us who are from a car resto back ground, can you explain what "Roll and Tip" is? Or did I miss it in this thread?

Ok, I'll try to explain it...
Be patient with me and my english ;)

When you apply 2-component-Polyurethan paint with a roller, it will not "flow" to a perfect shining layer by itself. After rolling there are remaining bubbles which have to be "eliminated", otherwise the surface will look like the skin of an orange.
So you take a soft brush and just gently tip or wipe over the rolled paint.
Because of the fast reaction of the paint-components you have to do this either in sections or with a second person tipping right after your rolling. If you are too slow, the brush will stick to the paint.

Now I will leave my sofa and go over to my garage and practice my "roll and tip" skills :laugh:

The end is near ;)

Next weekend I will be on the water with my boat. That's the plan...
To be honest, I'm not sure, if I will manage it to finish all the little things that are left and have to be done. Wish me luck!!!

The Mercury is back on the boat (and running!), the Teleflex and the shifting-box as well.
I still have to finish the electrical instalation (light / fishfinder / GPS / bilge-pump) and finally rhe seats.

Maybe I can show you some "water pictures" next weekend. I'm a little nervous... ;)

Have a nice day!

Sebastian

Hi Neil,

sure he will :laugh:
He is a great fisherman! Last year he caught a real good trout!
By the way, your little "helper" looks really cute! How old is she?
My son is 4,5 years old. A really good age to start boating and fishing!

Have a nice day!

YES! The Winner Piranha 2 is back in the water and it runs perfectly. I love this boat!
With the 25 hp Mercury it runs over 40 kilometers per hour (so nearly 25 mph).
And it runs perfectly soft through rough water.

Have a nice day and happy Easter!

Sebastian

Thank you guys B)

Next week I'll do my first fishing tour with the boat!
I'm already nervous :laugh:
Of course I will show you new pictures then!

By the way, I forgot one picture last time. That's not me driving the boat, it's my buddy Tim.
Look in his face and you can see how much fun we had, even it was freezing cold...

Have a nice day!

Is Tim going to get himself a boat and start sanding! ;)
I know of a good teacher that does top notch work.
I enjoyed your journey here with your "new" boat. I hope you can enjoy it for years and years. Well done.

They really love it!
To be honest, to them driving is more important than fishing, which makes fishing a little difficult for me :silly:
So we have the aggrement: half a day "driving", half a day "fishing". That works out fine.

Have a nice day!

One last picture for this year :(
The boating-season is over, it's getting cold and dark outside again. I'm thinking about modifying some features of the boat, let's see, what the winter brings ;)

So you see me now "waving goodbye".

Have a nice time!

Sebastian we enjoy talking to you more often than that. Many of us are here everyday. In the boating world we are all brothers and you have lots of friends here. Lets keep our projects active in the forum. We are interested. You've done a wonderful job on that boat.

Hi guys,

I'm still alive, we are still boating (especially my son!) and I'm still rebuilding "old stuff".

The last project was a Saab 900II Convertible, that was in perfect technical condition but over all poorly cared. It took a little while, to bring the original beauty of this car back!
Now it is looking pretty well again!

Best regards from Germany, Sebastian

Hi Sebastian. Are you still using your Winner?

I have just bought one myself, a Google search led me to this site and your boat!
